Announcing the Expansion of Legacy Corps Caregiver Support Program in Idaho
Friends in Action (FIA) are wrapping up the inaugural year of the Legacy Corps Caregiver Support program, and are gearing up to expand the number of volunteers and families serve in Idaho. FIA is recruiting 20 volunteers to serve with the next Legacy Corps team. These volunteers make a substantial commitment—beginning in November they commit to one year of service totaling 450 hours (includes 20 hours of pre-service training; 10-12 hours of assistance to families weekly; 4-hours of monthly in-service training).
Volunteers receive a monthly stipend to cover their volunteer expenses; an education award approaching $1500; and they will form deep bonds with their fellow volunteers and families they serve. We’ve watched our current Legacy Corps volunteers become an amazing team and build life-long friendships. We expect the same bonds and teamwork will develop in the next group of volunteers.
